A quick look at recent adventures…
CURRENTLY NARRATING: DECEPTION BAY by Chris Patchell (USA Today best-selling author) for North Lake Audio (fiction). A mystery/thriller set on Whidbey Island, Washington! “She’s armed. He’s dangerous. Together, can they stop a killer from tearing a small island community apart?” Fun fact: I’ve actually been to that island a couple times—when I go back, I’ll need to do the book tour! My first thriller and first title with this producer!
RECENTLY FINISHED: THE PERFECT MEDICINE by Brodie Ramin MD for Findaway Audioworks (nonfiction). This book explores the science of running and exercise and provides advice on how to maximize its benefits and be your best self.
UP NEXT: MISTER MANNERS by J.C. Bruce (fiction). “Who is the mysterious Mister Manners who has been gluing shopping carts to the roofs of cars, shattering unused turn signals, and generally terrorizing the rude and inconsiderate in Florida? Weird news columnist Alexander Strange is on a quest to track down the social avenger, but he may have gotten in over his head.”
ADVANCED TOOLS FOR NARRATORS: I created a new page on the site with many of the business systems I use when it comes to marketing and running this business. It’s mostly geared to narrators, though all of the items could be useful in other industries! Hope you find it helpful.
MOST POPULAR ON INSTAGRAM: When narrating fiction, part of the fun (at least for me) can be to CAST the movie version in my head. Apparently, I need to post more celebrities!
GEAR UPDATE: Thanks to the wonders of the internet/eBay, I scored a serious upgrade to my home studio at 35% off the retail cost! A big welcome to my new Sennheiser MK4 microphone (replacing my Audio Technica 2020) and Audient iD4 MKII interface. Took a little tweaking to get it all set up and things are sounding even better!
And for fun…
I recently visited the San Diego Zoo Safari Park—about 40 minutes north of the city, where many animals have a lot more space to roam free. And in fact, in the “Australian Walkabout”, there are no boundaries between you, the wallabies, and kangaroos! G’day!
